    440 ppi? really?
    may be its designed for some super humans or some disabled ones. such detailed screen and dens pixels can they really by seen by human eye ? or may be one will have to hold it 2 inches from the eye to truly experience wonders of its screen. Enhancements are good but ones that matter. In my opinion this much pixel density is just a waste.
